Place a back bet (up to £10) on a horse at minimum odds of 4.0.
Get a refund as cash if your horse trades at 1.99 or lower in-play and loses. This offer is available on a selected meeting each day.

Unibet Penalty Payback
This cracking offer is available on English Premier League football matches.
Refund as cash (to £100) on losing first goalscorer, correct score and half-time/full-time bets – if a penalty is awarded.
The strategy is back and lay, then hope a penalty is given.
Super Odds Saturday 3pm Treble: Sat 22nd Decmber 2018: Chelsea, Bournemouth and West Brom all to win at 5/1 (6.0). Max £5 stake.
Since the maximum stake is so small it’s best to underlay at the exchange: simply lay your stake plus commission. So assuming you backed £5 at William Hill on the treble, lay £5.20 at Smarkets if on 2% commission.
Scratch of The Day: every Saturday and Sunday there is usually a special offer like bet £X get £Y free bet.
